Trying to test some third grade kids (sit ups) and I hear screams from near the woods where they finish the lap. A four foot rattle snake is crawling toward my court. Beautiful animal brown and dark brown stripes maybe a cane brake. I try to keep him out of the woods so the police can take him out (shoot it) but one of my kids won't follow my directions so I focus on him too long. The snake makes it to heavily wooded area and we lost him. I should have run got the big 4x4 by my PE room but didnt think about it.
